Here come the Kansas City Chiefs. In what turned out to be one of the best games of the season, KC was able to take down Cincinnati 23-20 on Sunday night, punching their ticket to the Super Bowl. This was an incredible contest, and Patrick Mahomes once again was unreal.
Playing with a sprained ankle, Mahomes lit up the box score, throwing for 326 yards and two touchdowns. Come Feb. 12, Mahomes will be ready to try and win the second Super Bowl title of his brilliant career thus far.

Patrick Mahomes is eyeing Super Bowl MVP in 2023
With Mahomes playing so well, the Kansas City fan base is feeling confident they can win it all. However, the Eagles are actually favored to capture the Lombardi Trophy and Jalen Hurts is the favorite to win MVP.
Mahomes has other ideas, though, as he's not going to let anything slow him down once kickoff arrives. His performance vs. the Bengals was incredibly gutsy, as he battled so much pain to help out his team post the unforgettable victory.
"I just tried to do whatever I could to win, and obviously, there were times where you could see that it wouldn't let me do what I wanted to," Mahomes said via ESPN. "But I was able to do enough on that last play to get the first down and get myself out of bounds and try to give Harrison the chance to win. Obviously, we got the flag, and (Ossai) pushed me, pushed me pretty late there."
